Christmas Portraits

Got some shots of the entire family today at something of a holiday gathering. A communal joyous endeavor, accented with rum balls and wine. And Vietnamese food to top the night off.

I initially tried out my go-to lighting setup that I’ve been refining lately. Turns out it didn’t work out today, though I’m still not entirely sure why. Just part of the process I suppose. BUT! a quick repositioning of one of the lights led to this setup. Harsh, bright, beautiful.

And of course bigger picture stuff, now the entire family’s got some pretty neat shots of themselves at this very moment in time. Eventually we’ll all forget that these were shot on Christmas, forget our exact age in them, and likely forget the entire process of how they were shot and how I got them to emote and whatnot.

The senior picture.
